Interview with +Jacob Gardner   - Character Animator

Jacob has been working at +DreamWorks Animation  Animation for over 5 years now. He worked on films such as "Shrek Forever After", #Megamind, Puss In Boots, and  "Rise of the Guardians". Jacob is also co-founder of the animation website "Speaking Of Animation"; where he gets to talk about all the things he know and interview people who knows far more than him.

Jacob found the love for animation at an early age. It was when he saw Aladdin (around 7 or 8 years old at the time ) and he just knew that he wanted to make drawings come to life. Jacob was fascinated by the crazy energy of the Genie, and something so endearing about the believability of Aladdin, which made him want to begin his journey into the animation industry.

The first professional work Jacob ever did was as a cycles animator on the feature "Monsters Vs. Aliens" at DreamWorks Animation. That means he had to make a lot of loops of background characters walking, running, screaming, sitting that the crowds department would populate into the backgrounds of shots to fill out the world that was created.

Since Joining to +DreamWorks Animation  and working on many of their features, Jacob also joined the ranks of as a full time feature animation instructor.

An Interview with Floyd Norman - Legendary Walt Disney Animator

Floyd began his career at the Walt Disney Animation Studios many years ago, and have worked on more animated feature films and television shows than he can remember. What's really cool however, are the awesome people Floyd knew and worked with throughout his career at Walt Disney's magic factory.

Floyd's first animated feature film was Walt's masterpiece, "Sleeping Beauty" which wrapped in 1958 and ushered in the Old Maestro's final decade. In 1966 he was blessed with the opportunity to work on the animated film, "The Jungle Book".
